試合観戦契約約款についてのご案内

日本プロフェッショナル野球組織とセントラル野球連盟、パシフィック野球連盟、両連盟を構成する12球団は、このほど、「試合観戦契約約款」を設けました。

プロ野球では、だれもが安心して観戦でき、選手がフェアプレーに専念できる球場を守るために、2003年12月9日、「暴力団等排除宣言」を行い、暴力団と悪質応援団の排除に取り組むことを誓いました。
「試合観戦契約約款」は、この宣言に沿い、ファンの皆さまが安全・平穏に観戦でき、試合が円滑に行われる環境を確保することを目的として定めたものです。
具体的には、約款の目的(第1条)、暴力団等の排除(第3条ほか)、入場券の許可のない転売の禁止(第4条)、持込禁止物(第5条)、グラウンドへの乱入・物の投げ入れ等の禁止行為(第8条)などを規定しています。

また、私設応援団は許可制とし、「試合観戦契約約款」の下部規定として「特別応援許可規程」を定めました。許可制を通じて、より良質で健全な応援活動を確実にしようという趣旨で、いわゆる鳴り物応援を否定するものではありません。

旗、横断幕、トランペット、太鼓、笛等を用いた応援活動は、特別に許可された団体に限ります。

「試合観戦契約約款」と「特別応援許可規程」は、公式戦・オープン戦、1軍・2軍などを問わず、すべての球場におけるプロ野球のすべての試合に適用いたします。
プロ野球ファンの皆さまのご理解とご協力をどうかよろしくお願いいたします。
